Himeji-jo is the Japanese castle which was in Himeji-shi, Hyogo. An another name, Shirasagi-jo. Because they seemed to be spreading their wings and be dancing, a white heron was called.
The main building which are Tenshu built for an early stage and a turret, etc. in the Edo Period exists. The biggest old castle with the complete scale left in Japan. 8 houses which make the donjon the center are national treasure, and additionally a building of 74 designates it as an important cultural asset. World-class cultural property is registered in 1993. It’s lit up after sunset.

Himeji-jo I did ground opening of on March 27, 2015. It’s seen as an snow-white castle because plaster is being even applied a joint of a tile as well as a grid of the window. A part of a tile will become black several years later. Many tourists fall on a season of a cherry tree, and visit.
